The New Elderly Friendly Bus

Done by: Tay Ming Yi
Class of 1-02 (2011)
Description: Considering the hustle and bustle of the morning and evening rush hours, Ming Yi designed the New Elderly Friendly Bus to better address the needs of the elderly when taking public transport to and fro from their place of residence. Ferrying only the elderly, the seats of the bus have headrests and railings attached to them to improve the comfort factor and their actions of getting up from their seats, respectively. Hooks are installed at the sides of seat railings to hook on umbrellas and grocery bags. Humps are lined along the floor edges of the wheelchair slots to prevent the wheelchair from moving forward should the bus jerks to a halt. Ez-link card scanner screens are made bigger to display a larger font sizes. There are wider spaces in-between seats so that the elderly are able to walk about without having to squeeze through narrow gaps.
